About the Regional Banking Commissions


Over the past years, the ICC Banking Commission's mandates and functions have significantly evolved and expanded. This is why the ICC Banking Commission leadership recently decided to embark on a series of major efforts to improve the regional reach for ICC banking products and services.

The Regional Banking Commissions on trade finance will seek to strengthen the Banking Commission's reach at regional level with regional policy makers and associations including disseminating ICC Banking Commission policy content to regional industry leaders, regulators and governmental officials.
